A car’s battery is one of its most critical components. Its key functions include providing power to the starter, ignition system, fuel system, and all other electrical components of your car including radio, lights, GPS, wipers, horn, etc.
In case you are experiencing any of the following situations about your car, then there is quite a chance that your battery needs to be tested and replaced:
- The car doesn’t start or the engine doesn’t turn on
- The battery light on the dashboard is on
- The headlights go dim, especially during and immediately after starting the car
- The engine does not fire up instantly when the key is turned in the ignition
It is not always necessary that the battery has become faulty. In some cases, other parts like the alternator or starter motor may be the cause of the issue. Either way, we advise you to always get a consultation from expert mechanics, who will ensure that your problem gets fixed and you do not have to bear any unnecessary costs.
